K-EARTH 101’s Christmas Karoke Kash Contest Rules
KRTH FM “Christmas Karaoke Kash” Giveaway
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING.
1. HOW TO ENTER
a. These rules govern the KRTH “Karaoke Kash” Giveaway promotion (the “Promotion”) being conducted by KRTH-FM (the “Station”) beginning on Monday, November 11, 2013 at 7:00am Pacific Time (“PT”) and ending on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 4:59pm PT (the “Promotion Dates”).
b. To participate in the Promotion, you must listen to the Station each weekday at approximately 7:00am PT during the Promotion Dates for the announcement of the “Karaoke Christmas Kash” song of the day and when it will play. After the announcement the “Karaoke Christmas Kash” song, artist name, time to listen for “Karaoke Christmas Kash” song of the day and the lyrics that need to be sung and completed will be posted online at http://www.kearth101.com. Then listen again later in the day for the “Karaoke Christmas Kash” song to play. When the song cuts out, be the 9th caller at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) and correctly sing the next line of the song’s lyrics. If the lyric is sung correctly, the caller will win a prize, upon confirmation of eligibility. If the lyric is sung incorrectly, the prize money will roll over to the next Promotion day’s prize. Once the 9th caller is on the phone, a member of the Station’s promotion and/or programming staff will be in the studio with the on-air talent to hear the caller’s sung response to the next line of the song. The staff member of the Station and the on-air talent will decide if the caller has sung the lyric correctly. The air talent may ask the caller to re-sing their answer if they need to hear it again to make their judgment. The song must be played on the terrestrial radio broadcast of the Station. If the song is played on the Station’s online stream but not on the terrestrial radio broadcast, the playing of the song will not be valid for this Promotion as the cue to call. At the time of their call, callers will be required to provide all information requested including their full name, complete address (including zip code), day and evening phone numbers and date of birth in order to be eligible to win. In the event that the selected caller is disconnected or is found to be ineligible, the next eligible caller that successfully makes it through on the call-in line and completes their call and correctly sings the next line of the song’s lyrics will be a winner. There is no limit to the number of times a listener may attempt to call in to win, but a listener may be a prize winner only once. There will be up to a total of twenty (20) prize winners selected on-air during the Promotion Dates. The Station is not responsible for telephone service outages, delays, busy signals, equipment malfunctions and any other technological difficulties that may prevent an individual from completing his/her telephone call.
c. Due to delays in the online streaming of the Station’s broadcast signal, listeners to the online stream may not be able to participate in or may be disadvantaged in participating in on-air contests. Entrants are encouraged to listen to the Station on-air. The Station is not responsible for online streaming delays.
